Hello Maja fans!

It’s Mary here and I would like to share with you a layout for my June inspiration. And for one more time, I made a colorful page with lots of flowers, chipboards and IOD moulds. The color combination I used is one of my favorite and I think it suits perfectly on the soft Maja Design papers. Don’t you think?

As you may already know, I love searching on Pinterest to find photos to scrap and this time I came across with that photo. And, the beautiful papers from the ”Denim & Friends” collection was just perfect for it. But, before I continue more I want to give all the proper credits to the ”unknown” photographer.

For my background I used the back side of the ”Fashion” paper. To start, I gave my background a coat of clear gesso. When it was dried, I added some texture with paper texture paste and a stencil.

I used some Lindy’s Gang sprays to color my pages and made some stamping here and there.

I heat embossed the ”Mystic Frame #2” flourish chipboard with the ”Gutten Tag Teal” Lindy’s powder.  The title chipboard was also embossed with the ”Yodeling Yellow” powder and then, I covered it with the ”White Gold” wax. I randomly rubbed the same wax on the flourish chipboard and on the moulds too. The chipboards I used are Dusty Attic. 

When everything was glued down, I added some art stones and I made the final touch with some splatters with white ink.

That’s all for today, my friends!

Thank you for stopping by!

Hello dear friends!

Mary here with you sharing my latest layout for my May inspiration. This time I made a colorful page with lots of flowers, laces, chipboards and metal embellishments and I choose a dark paper to combine them. I don’t really remenber if I have already told how much I love that combination. The contrast is just amazing!

 

As you may already know, I love searching on Pinterest to find photos to scrap and this time I came across with that beautiful photo. And, the new gorgeous ”Celebration” collection was just perfect for it. But, before I continue more I want to give all the proper credits to the ”unknown” photographer.

For my background I used the ”Ephemera” paper on the back side. To start, I gave my background a coat of clear gesso and I applied a small amount of white gesso behinde my combosition. When it was dried, I added some texture with paper texture paste and a stencil.

I made some stamping here and there and then I heat embossed the patterns with the ”Venus Violet Blue” and the ”Sunset Yellow Orange” Lindy’s Gang embossing powders. Continued by coloring my page with the ”Tea Pot Purple” and the ”Magnolia Magenta Gold” Lindy’s sprays.

I painted the ”Small Scroll #2” flourish chipboard with the Sparks ”Iris Potion” acrylic paint.  The ”Clockworks Small” chipboard was also painted with the metallique ”Steampunk Copper” paint. The chipboards I used are Dusty Attic. 

When everything was glued down, I added some art stones and sprinkled some glitter on them. The final touch was made with some splatters with white ink.

Hello dears and welcome to the blog!

Today, I would like to share with you my inspiration for April. This time I have something a little bit different from my comfort zone. I made two cards with papers from the ”Enjoying Outdoors” collection along with lots of flowers and laces.

For the background I choose the ”Singing in the rain” paper and I used it on both cards. I made two layers on the first one with the ”The Great Nature” and the ”Woodlands” papers. I added color with the Edelweiss Moss Green Lindy’s Gang spray. The butterfly chipboard was painted with the Finnabair acrylic paint sparks ”Fairy Wings”.

I have also made two layers on the second one with the ”Gardening” and the ”Time for reflection” papers. I used the Open Arms Amethyst Lindy’s Gang spray to add some color. The butterfly chipboard was painted with the Finnabair acrylic paint sparks ”Iris Potion”. The chipboards are Dusty Attic and the flowers are Prima Marketing.

When everything was glued down, I added some glass beads and sprinkled a little glitter on them. The final touch was made with some splatters with white ink.

Hello Maja friends!

Mary with you today to share my inspiration for March. I made a soft romantic page with lots of flowers, laces and chipboards.

As you may already know, I love searching on Pinterest to find photos to scrap and this time I came across with that beautiful photo. And, the new gorgeous ”Celebration” collection was just perfect for it. But, before I continue more I want to give all the proper credits to the ”unknown” photographer.

I used the ”All Dressed Up” paper for my background and I added some layers on it with the ”To the Party”, the ”Jubilee” and the ”Good Times” papers.

First, I gave my background a coat of clear gesso. When it was dried, I added some texture with modeling paste and a stencil. I made some stamping here and there and continued by coloring my page with the ”Cotton Candy Pink” and the ”Open Arms Amethyst” Lindy’s Gang spray.

I painted the ”Swirly Frame” chipboard and the word title with the Sparks ”Butterfly Spells” acrylic paint.  The ”Foliage #10” chipboards were also painted with the metallique ”White Pearl” acrylic paint. The chipboards I used are Dusty Attic. 

When everything was glued down, I added some art stones and sprinkled some glitter on them. The final touch was made with some splatters with white ink.

Hello Maja fans!

Mary with you today to share my inspiration for February. I made a soft blue tone layout with lots of flowers, laces, chipboards and metal embellishments.

As you may already know, I love searching on Pinterest to find photos to scrap and this time I came across that beautiful and mysterious photo of a girl with a horse. And, the new gorgeous ”Celebration” collection was just perfect for it. But, before I continue more I want to give all the proper credits to the ”unknown” photographer.

I choose the ”You’re Invited” paper for my background and I added some layers with the ”Party” paper and the ”Anniversary” using both sides of it.

First, I gave my background a coat of clear gesso. When it was dried, I added some texture with white crackle paste and a stencil. I made some stamping here and there and continued by coloring my page with the ”Blue Hawaiian Blue” Lindy’s Gang spray.

I painted the flourish chipboards and the title with the Sparks ”Magical Pond” acrylic paint. When dried, I gently rubbed on them some ”Vintage Gold” Wax. The ”Flower Stamens” chipboards were also painted with the Sparks ”Raven Black” and they were rubbed first with the ”Blue Velvet” Wax and then with the ”Vintage Gold”. The chipboards I used, are from Dusty Attic. 

When everything was glued down, I added some crystal and turquoise glass beads and sprinkled some glitter. I final touch was made with some splatters with white ink.
